Report: The Stone Roses to release new album

UK Britpop outfit hasn't released an album in 22 years

Stone Roses

    A new album from The Stone Roses, the band’s first in 22 years, is reportedly on the way.

    UK newspaper The Mirror reports that the album is being released to coincide with the band’s tour dates this summer.

    Update – Thursday, March 24th at 12:40 p.m. CT: In a brief interview with NME, frontman Ian Brown confirms the band is working on “glorious” new music.

    The Stone Roses have yet to officially comment on The Mirror report; however, in recent months they’ve been teasing the possibility of new music. Late last year, bassist Mani revealed in an interview that the band had “working on a few bits”. Earlier this month, posters displaying the band’s classic lemon logo popped up in their hometown of Manchester, England.


    Consequence of Sound has reached out to Stone Roses representatives for comment.

    The Stone Roses have confirmed shows in Tokyo, Manchester, Dublin, and New York City, as well as a headlining appearance at UK festival T in the Park. See their current tour schedule below, and revisit their video for “I Wanna Be Adored”.
